Fitness centre closes during Christmas holiday

foto-poliesportiu-2018The Formentera Council department of sport announces that Poliesportiu Antoni Blanc and the swimming pool will close from Friday December 21 to Sunday January 6. The closure will not only give crews the chance to conduct maintenance and other operations that cannot be done when the centre is in use, but it will be used as time-off by staff.

Activities will pick up at the two facilities on Monday January 7. Timetables and details about classes being offered can be found here.

Island welcomes rescheduling of last Formentera-bound ferry

foto port-de-la-savina-barquesThe Formentera Council's mobility office hails the choice of 9.30pm as the latest ferry trip from Eivissa to Formentera on weekdays.

Mobility councillor Rafael González thanked transport company Trasmapi for rescheduling the last journey out of Eivissa's port, Vila, which he said made the move “in response to the requests of islanders and the Council”. González described the retooled ferry service as “an improvement in terms of Formentera residents' mobility, not least for islanders that take the ferry for work, school or medical reasons, or to make connections through the airport”.

González also noted the service tweak means alignment with legislation known as the Llei de Transport Marítim ("Martime Transport Act", 11/2010) mandating transport options from Eivissa to Formentera at least until 9.30pm.
